According to the Yomiuri Shinbun newspaper, high-end bicycles are getting stolen at a fast pace in Japan's capital city.
In 2006, 181 bikes valued at 100,000 yen (USD $1,000) or more were stolen in Tokyo.
Just five years later, in 2011, that had skyrocketed to 686.
Many of the stolen bikes end up on the Internet where they are sold.
